On line dating has its stereotypes attached to it, and it doesnt seem to be the normal way to date, but seems to be becoming more of a trend in today's scene. Now, take the reality shows. The Bachelor, or the Bachelorette, Joe Millionaire, Married byu America, and many more... Now, obviously the television industry itself is based on ratings and has no real concern for finding someone a mate. I am not sure how each couple has turned out, but it seems that the Bachelorette (Trista and Ryan) are the only two that are actually going through with marriage. Now, my comparison questions are as followed:
1.) How do you compare these types of match making or dating techniques?
2.) Do you feel that on line dating, match ads and such or better and more serious than any of the reality shows for match-mating or visa versa?
So, that is my two comparison questions and feel free to add anything else you want to say about the topics at hand. I just thought I would bring this discussion to the table, since I am curious what you all think about it. I personally feel that the shows are not really trying to find matches, only ratings. I notice it is more about money than anything else. Even with the MR. Firestone, Bachelor himself...he acts as if he is really looking to find "the one", but it seems that being on television with all those women and the publicity he is bringing to "Firestone" with his debut, is more important. I guess some people get into these shows, which is entertaining I agree, but the morals and basis of why they are doing them, is beyond me. Anywho...thats me, now your turn. Tell me what you think!
